does it seem like ever since this gun debate stuff, people have been going on small rampages and hostage situations more now? and the news is covering anything and everything that has to do with guns and shootings..

I haven't been watching the news today but, my Uncle just posted on FB about an ex cop going on a shooting rampage. I am guessing that is what this thread is about?

I think it happens all the time but the media is reporting ever single gun related story now.

Guns are the hot topic right now, so every media outlet thinks that they need to get their fair share of the ratings.

it seems like the topics are more severe now...like shooting and killing the bus driver in front of all the kids and kidnapping...and even todays issue. I know shootings happen every day, but this severe?

If the shootings happen anyways, how is the media reporting them making them seem bad?

Ratings and propaganda.

It's not propaganda if its really happening. You're right about ratings though

That is not correct. Propaganda is meant to influence someones opinion about something and this is 100% propaganda.

It is about propaganda to push for taking our rights away. They are overly exposing shootings in the media as if it hasn't been going on for years and years.

I guess I just disagree because I don't believe reporting on what's going on in our world is trying to convince people of something. I believe gun violence really is an issue, too
